Young Carers

A young carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a relative who has a condition, such as a disability, illness, mental health condition, or a drug or alcohol problem.

Most young carers look after one of their parents or care for a brother or sister. This might involve extra jobs in and around the home, such as cooking, cleaning, or helping someone to get dressed and move around.
